Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 29:5

_ _ wilderness — captivity beyond thy kingdom. The expression is used perhaps to imply retribution in kind. As Egypt pursued after Israel, saying, “The wilderness hath shut them in” (Exodus 14:3), so she herself shall be brought into a wilderness state.

_ _ open fields — literally, “face of the field.”

_ _ not be brought together — As the crocodile is not, when caught, restored to the river, so no remnant of thy routed army shall be brought together, and rallied, after its defeat in the wilderness. Pharaoh led an army against Cyrene in Africa, in support of Aricranes, who had been stripped of his kingdom by the Cyrenians. The army perished and Egypt rebelled against him [Junius]. But the reference is mainly to the defeat by Nebuchadnezzar.

_ _ beasts ... fowls — hostile and savage men.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 29:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 29:5

Leave thee — When thus brought out, I will leave thee. The wilderness — The deserts of Libya and Syene. All the fish — The whole army of the Egyptians. The open fields — There was this king and his army ruined. Gathered — These were not buried, but left in the wilderness, a prey to wild beasts, and birds.
